Import Corrected Transcript Adds Spaces

I don't recall if I reported this previously, but it occurred as early as 22.6.0.50. 

 

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create transcript (source or static I think).
  2. Export as .txt.
  3. Reimport unchanged (or with edits).


Result:

A - Space is added between transcript segments.

In the original export, segments are separated by:

CRLF

CRLF

 

If you re-export, segments are separated by

CR

CRLF

Space CRLF

CR

CRLF

CRLF

CRLF

 

B - If create captions, spaces appear as boxes with X. (These can be edited and removed. Or if you simply open the segment for editing but make no change, the space remains but the box/X is gone in the caption on the timeline.)


Expected:

No space would be added.
 

Workaround. Export original transcript as .txt. Merge segments outside PR by adding a single space after each segment and removing the line ending. (This creates a single, word-wrapped segment.) As timecodes, use the begin timecode of first segment and the end timecode for last segment. Import as corrected. Import as corrected. The original transcript timecodes are used and no extra space is added.

 

If you merge in PR, the original timecodes are lost.

I am very surprised; I thought this was fixed.

 

I see it in 23.6.2, 24.0.0, and the new 24.0.3. I do NOT see it in Beta 24.2.0 Build 15.

 

The problem occurs on import of a file; the exported file does not contain extra space.

 

I may be confused because almost all of my recent tests with "import corrected" modifies the file so there are NO timecodes, just a single word wrapped paragrph with no returns. This imports correctly with PR applying the timecodes.

 

Note that in my newer tests for the workaround, a beginning and ending timecode nor a line for speaker are required.

Hi Stan,

we fixed this issue recently, you should see it working in 24.1 or newer beta builds. Let me know if it still occurs.

 

Best,

Kerstin

Thanks for the confirmation. Yes, I see it fixed in my current Beta 24.2.0.15.
